Did you miss the Current Wine and Wine Grape Research (CWWGR) conference held in Freeborn Hall on February 21? Not to worry – the sessions were recorded and the recordings are now available for viewing on the Integrated Viticulture website under Videotaped Seminars and Events.
The CWWGR showcases viticulture and wine-related research projects as 20-minute talks by researchers. This event was first offered in 2009 and is anticipated to be offered annually as an opportunity for researchers, growers, winemakers, students, and others interested in cutting-edge projects. The format of short reports allows for synopses of many projects in a single day.
The research was funded by grants from the American Vineyard Foundation (AVF), Viticulture Consortium West (VCW), and/or the California Competitive Grants Program for Research in Viticulture and Enology. The CWWGR was co-sponsored by AVF and the National Grape and Wine Initiative (NGWI).
